Salmon Fishing
At Campbell River
Season for the Big Tyeea hau
Arrived. Anglers from Different Parts of the World Reported to He On Their Way
to Famous Fishing Grounds.
That the season for the big fish to
be caught tins arrived was amply
demonstrated to several people last
week on reading that .Mrs. A. Macdonald Smith, of Mexico, had the
honor of landing the first Tyee of
the season, when she caught one
weighing thirty-live ami one half
pounds, il was verified hy the official
weigher of the Tyee Club or British
Columbia, E. P. Painter,
For 30 years the vicinity of Campbell ttlver, Vancouver Island, British
Columbia, has been known to professional fishermen—and to a few amateur sportsmen—as ? spot favored
during .August with one of the most
■remarkable "run" of Tyee Salmon
on  tbe  Pacific Coast.
These great game Hall of ihe sens—
the largest of the genus "Oncorhyn-
chus". or Pacific Salmon—may occasionally he taken in many Waters of
B.C. [but as a general rule at depth
bo great as to necessitate the use of
heavy leads, consequently precluding
Huccessful   Ashing  with   light  tackle.
• Along the edges of the bars of
Discovery Passage, just off the mouth
of Campbell River, light tackle, rod
and line trolling with line at a depth
of ten to twenty feet is successful.
The natural topography of the land
and sea bed, unusually sheltered
from storms ami tide rips, hero pro>
vldes the marvellous thrill of challenging these gladiators of the seas
to fair combat with light tackle.
Experienced anglers—true sportsmen—realize that the thrill of capturing on light rod and reel a 30, 40,
50 pound fighting Tyee—averaging one
or two n day during tlie season—with
always tho long chance of tangling
up with n 60 or 71) pounder is worth
much expense and thousands of miles
of travel.
Incidentally such true sportsmen
express the utmost contempt for anything savoring of poor sportsmanship
—Including the use of hand-lines,
metal lines, or other heavy tackle.
More sportsmen realize that oppor-

Dominion Day Sports at Courtenay
passed off without a mishap on Monday last, aud in spite of the cloudy
weather, a large number of people
attending, every part of the district
being represented, A number of people went down from Cumberland and
were very much surprised on finding
out that ui'c admission was being
charged to the sport's field. Whilst
Cumberland people can not he charged with being close, the -majority object to paying  f)0c  to see  sports  as

crowd present as the children's sports
got under way. a large consignment
of excursionists from Powell Rlvor
arriving under the auspices of the
Moose Lodge of tbe Papertown.
It was nbout half past ten when the
strains of music from the boys' band
announced the fact that the parade was
under way from the school to the
park. This feature occasioned considerable disappointment after the
wonderful parade of a year ago. there
being but a couple of floats, including a very good one from Campbell
River, a few cars and a smattering of
children. The Dominion Queen, Miss
Betty Knight, of Comox. accompanied
by her maids of honor, Kathleen Ellis and Vera Nordin, was fn a decorated car driven by Mr. W. Gage and on
her nrrival at the sports ground was
duly crowned by ex-Queen Gladys
Bowen in approved style, after which
Mr. Seymour Abrams, President of the
Canadian Club, addressed those pre
late who have succeeded In transforming the Sullivan mine, in the
course of a few years, from a useless
body of ore into one of the richest
and most profitable mines in North
America, had given employment to
thousands of men at good wages and
had built up a thriving community. A
decade ago this mine had been abandoned. It had been a low grade cop-
losition, and the price of copper had been too low to pay for the
smelting of the ore. In addition to
copper, the ore contained five other
precious and semi precious minerals.
The problem which the smelter's research men set themselves to solve
was to release these other minerals
at a cost which would justify the
treatment of the ore. After two years
experimenting a process was evolved
for releasing the tin and the mine reopened. Succeeding discoveries had
rendered practical the releasing of
the other minerals with the result
that the Sullivan mine is now a world
famous mine. From it was extracted
one-eighth of the world's total production of Chronium—a valuable byproduct.
What has been demonstrated m
other countries, Mr. Davie said, that
more than one hundred valuable byproducts could be obtained from coal-
medicines, dyes, fertilizers and a great
variety of liquid fuels to mention only
a few. The most valuable part ot the
coal Is  left In  the dumps, he says,

The last event of the day and that
which afforded the greatest attraction
was the baseball game between Powell River and Courtenay. After thc
splendid exhibition of the day before,
the fans looked for a good game but
were somewhat disappointed, Tlie
visitors put up a good brand of ball
but the local boys were quite tlie reverse and got a good trimming. This
was largely accountable to the fact
that Downey was out of the game
with a pons hand which he hurt in
the previous days game. The final
score was 12 to 5, four of Courtrnays
runs coming in the eighth frame when
with the bases full Bill McKee slammed out a home run.
In the evening a competition wns
held between the Courtenay and Cumberland Fire Brigades in which the
local fire laddies not the better ol
their rivals from the Coal City.
During the day the Courtenay Boys
Band dispensed very creditable music.
A special attraction during the day
was an aeroplane sent up from Victoria for the occasion which was kept
busy from early morning until quite
late taking adventurous ones on their
first attempt at Hying.
Tiie celebration closed with a monstrous dance under the supervision of
Sam McLeod at the Royston Pavilion.
9th innings: Noble fanned. Solloway drove one down the line to Dixon

The Matriculation clans was In two

possible to find sufficient time to
cover thoroughly and revise the subjects  during  school  hours.
lit an endeavour to remedy this
state of affairs. Miss Partridge and 1
willingly gave instruction after school
hours. Candidly speaking, however,
there are several drawbacks to this
expedient. In the llrst place, at the
end of the regular school hours the
pupil! are naturally somewhat tired
and their ability to get full value from
the instruction is below par. Furthermore, It would unfortunately appear
that this extra teaching is considered
by some to be un Indication of Inefficient teaching during school hours.
Thus, a misconstruction, arising from
non-appreciallon ot thc difficulties
and efforts of the staff .is placed on
tlie extra time taught outside regular
school  hours.
Ill conclusion I wLsh to acknowledge the hearty co-operation 1 have received from .Miss Partridge.

as a grain port, drawing Its wheat wholly from the
prairies, has, in a few years become the third, if
not the second greatest port in the world. This is the
statement made by no less an authority than R, D. Williams president of the .Merchants' Exchange given at a
banquet recently In celebrating the passage through thu
port of the eightieth million bushel of grain this season.
The success of the port was attributed to the policy of
ihe Board of Harbro Commissioners.
The mere fact that Vancouver has drawn so largely and
so Increasingly on the grain from the prairies U proof
that it pays to route grain westward. It permits a saving
for the producer that formerly was paid in transportation
There are other Significant features, however. As the
grain shipments through Vancouver have Increased, so
have the exports of Canadian grain through United States
Ports decreased. The port or Vancouver is rendering a
real economic and national service. Bui how much greater service can be rendered when the vast wheat areas ot
the Peace River district have rail facilities? Can one
estimate the development which must result when the
Peace disgorges its millions of bushels through the only
natural outlet, that of the Pacific Great Eastern througn
to North Vancouver? The Review, North Vancouver.
Residents of Cumberland should be glad that
Vancouver is going ahead so last and that it is
primarily due to the grain shipment that such
success is due. Cumberland watches year by year
the number of grain boats coming into the port
, of Vancouver for the product of the prairie prov-
| inces. More boats mean more coal and with the
| very best steam coal in the Cumberland area,
' business in "black diamonds" is sure to increase.
^ With development work proceeding at No. 5 mine
! this district will be In a better position than ever
i before to meet any demand from increased ship
I ping using the port of Vancouver.

In connection with school sports
may I mention that the drawn football mentioned in my last report has
won the championship cup for Public
School ftve-a-slde football. The work
for the month has been largely review

A group of requisitions for supplies
is attached and where possible a comparison showing decrease is given
as compared with last term's which
had already been decreased.
The following minor repairs are |
asked for: (1)Stopping draft which'

Obscuring the window in the Teachers' Lavatory downstairs; (3) Placing all maps on boards, with screws

The library has been closed and all
but three books are reported returned. These are being sought from the
pupils who have them. Others mislaid have been replaced by books of
similar value. The numbe of books
in the public library Is 397 exclusive
of paper covered books for primary
reading. There are also 102 bound
books in the junior grade library In
Divisions VIII and IX. making a total of 499 books. To these should be
added about 75 paper covered reading
books for Primary Grades, which, however, are not counted in as they cannot be expected to last many terms.
There are 225 books in the reference
library. There were 14 books purchased for the library during the
term at a cost of $12.00 and 14 donated by Miss I. McFadyen. A list of I
books for purchase is appended. \
The gardens have been put in fair
shape and a great deal of grass cleaned out. The use of manure this
spring has introduced an extremely
large amount of weeds and grass.
There will be several days' work for
a man to keep them in the shape they
now are in.
The teachers will place the amount
In hand for the Tennis Court at the
disposal of the board if action is taken during the summer. MissI ,Mac-

necessary the Staff will raise as much
aa possible In the Fall to meet the
balance owing.

The monthly report forms, In and
out forms, aud annual reports for
the year are submitted. The Free
Text Requisition has been forwarded
to Victoria.
The results of the year's work has
been in my opinion very satisfactory,
the work in the grades being well
covered. 326 pupils have been promoted. As intimated ln my earlier
report a check up of the grading
criticized by Inspector Patterson has
been undertaken. The rsults quite
justify my grading—pupils of Junior
VI making a higher mark than pupils of Senior V. The test used was
the second part of that used by Mr.
Patterson and better results throughout the entire Vlth grade were found.
A test based on the course of study
was also given and the results in my
opinion were quite satisfactory.
The entrance recommendation committee granted promotion to 22 pupils
18 writing the examination as well as
three medallists trying. I believe the
class will show excellent results when
the marks are publshed.
In conclusion may I say that I
consider every member of the staff
lo have done good though perhaps
not 'spectacular' work and trust that
the new year will find the work pro-

tunlties for enjoying such unusual
sport can now he obtained In few
parts of the world and are well worth
preserving. Hence, the Genses of the
Tyee Club of British Columbia.
Tackle Specliicntioiis
The Tyee Club of British Columbia
aims to standardize among amateur
anglers tackle suitable for tlie successful capture of Tyee Salmon up
to 75 pounds in weight.
Eventually It Is proposed to enforce
very exacting weights of rod and Hues
but it is considered, as yet, Impracticable to set an absolute standard. It
would he obviously unfair to bar the
long British Columbia Hods fn favor
of the short American Sea Hods, or
vice versa.
Therefore, while not barring any
Light Tackle which, in the opinion
of the Tackle Committee, confirms to
the spirit ol giving the llsh an even
chance for Its lire, the following described tackle is strongly recommended us Fair Tackle. Anglers would do
well to adhere closely to such specifications, which will be free from any
criticism by the Tackle Committed,
and which tackle Is now known as,
"Tyee Light Tackle."
Rod to be of wood, consisting <ol!
butt and tip. and to he not shorter
than six feet over all. But not to
exceed fourteen inches in length. Tip
to be not less than five feet in length
and to weigh not more than six ounces. Line, standard nlue-strand linen, with a maximum breaking strain
when dry of 26 pounds. Length of
line unlimited. .Metal line will not be
permitted, but leaders may be of wire
or other material. limited to six feet
In length. Double line may be used
If desired, but limited to ten feet. One
hook only is permitted.
In addition lo various valuable
prizes offered by firms and individuals for competition from time to
time—notice of which will he posted
at the club Headquarters, the following prizes are awarded to members in
good standing by the Tyee Club of
British Columbia.
Bronze Button—for successful capture on light tackle, under the rules
nnd regulations as published herein,
of a Tyee Salmon, weighing 30 pounds
or over.
Silver Button—for capture as above
of a Tyee Salmon weighing forty
pounds or over.
Gold Button—for caplure as above
of a Tyee Salmon weighing 50 pounds
or over.
Diamond Button—for capture ns
above of a Tyee Salmon weighing 60
pounds or over.
Championship Medallion—designating the winner "Tyee Man", for tho
season, for the capture as above of
the largest Tyee Salmon of the year,
(season July 1st to September 80th).
Ortnuilzutleii and   History
The Tyee Club of British Columbia
wns organized In 1924 and Incorporated In 1927 under the Societies Act
of the Province of British Columbia,
The Objects of the Club
To foster interest In Canada's greatest game fish. To emphasize the ideais
of sportsmanship as distinguished
from slaughter. To standardize flan-
Ing tackle. To co-operate with tin
Fisheries Department of the Dominion, of Canada in the observation of
tagged fish. To properly authenticate
and record weights and measurements
of fish taken on legitimate tackle
from waters within the jurisdiction
of the Club. To officially frown on
the taking of fish In any other way.
Membership Is limited t oamateur
anglers who have qualified by taking
a Tyee Salmon on light tackle weighing over thirty pounds.
That the ideals of sportsmanship
nnd code ethics promulgated by the
club are receiving wide recognition Is
more and more evident.    In 1022, at
the height of the season, seldom more
than eight amateur anglers were on
the fishing grounds at one time. Seven
out of eight used hand-line of a size
and tensile strength of 75 pounds and
up—more suitable for anchor lines
than for any form of sport.
In 1923. an Improvement was apparent. Many more sportsmen appeared, fully one In three using rods,
reels and light lines.
. In 1924 sixteen amateur boats were
counted on the water at one time—
and mure than half using legitimate
tackle. Then those good sportsmen
who knew from experience that there
was infinitely mor thrill In hooking
one big fellow on light rod aud line
and lauding lilm in un hour or maybe
two than in the slaughter of a dozen
game fish on "young cables", organized the Tyee Club of British Columbia.
Initial organization of the club and
Immediate success were largely due
to the effort and supervision of that
famous roilman, Dr. J, A. Wlborn, the
original of Kane Grey's Celebrated
"Lone Angler".
—In 1025, through the efforts of
the Tyee Club of British Columbia, and
lu order to maintain and Improve
fishing for the sport, the Dominion
Fisheries Department was Induced to
establish a reserve against net fishing, covering the whole of Discovery
Passage. In that season twenty-four
imateurs were counted on the water
at one time and seventeen had adopted  light tackle.
In 1927, partially due to abolition
of net fishing, rod and line fishing
was better than for many years.
Nearly forty amateur boats were
working at once—celebrated anglers
were there from, London, Bermudi,
New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Hong
Kong, Tien Tsln—and seven of eight
were using light tackle.
Of course, everybody is not successful. Some luck Is involved, nnd
more patience and skill, but the records of the club show that in five
weeks two hundred nnd sixty-seven
Tyees of over twenty pounds each
were taken by sixty amateur sportsmen using light tackle and conforming to the rules of the club.
More, the wlelder of the odd hand-
line Is rapidly becoming an object of
polite indifference. Even some professionals have begun to experiment
with rods and reels.
In such manner and on somewhat
similar lines to the famous Long Key
Fishing Club In Florida and the Tuna
Club In California has the organization of the Tyee Club of British Columbia been perfected. Its rapidly
growing prestige has been further
strengthened and authenticated by-
formal incorporation, under the British Columbia Societies Act In 1927,
All rights to the name are protected
—the Tyee Club of British Columbia,
Non-resident anglers are required
by the Province of British Columbia
to pay a fee of $1.00 per day or $5.00
for the season. Licenses may be
procured from any Government Office
or from the Tyee Club Headquarter,
The jurisdiction of the Tyee Club
of British Columbia is limited to the
waters of Discovery Passage, bounded
on the south by a line extended due
west from Cape Mudge and on the
North by Seymour Narrows, British
An applicant for active member
ship must be an amateur angler( see
clause 6, by-law 9) must qualify by
taking a Tyee Salmon of 30 pounds
minimum weight on, fair tackle (see
tackle specifications) and must be
regularly elected to active membership,
The angler must bring his fish to
gaff unaided, and no other person may
touch rod. reel or line, except for the
purpose of removing the lead and
handling the leader for the purpose
of gaffing.
All fish entered for membership
qualifications or for prizes must be
weighed by the Official Weigher of
the Club nnd on scales approved by
the Club.    The offical weigher shall
sign weight certificate, which shall be

FROM the cold, deep waters of the seven thousand miles of British
Columbia's Pacific Coast, comes a harvest of fish that the palate of
all mankind enjoys! For over twenty years our Province has been
a leading factor in Canada's fishing industry. Progress continues
unabated... the markets to the ends of the earth demanding ever
increasing quantities.
The past ten years have seen this industry
grow from 14 million to 27 million dollars . . .
an increase of 89%. Our annual catch totals
nearly half the entire Canadian production,
■and "King Salmon," our marine silver mine
accounts fur at least 15 million dollars a year.

an industry that will continue to grow.
The fame of British Columbia's Whaling

Increased t!?e value of the products from this
industry- The yearly catch, now about 400, is
taken   between   one   station   on   Vancouver
Island and two stations on the Queen Charlotte Islands.
Much as has been done to develop and conserve
our fishing Industry, there still remain;, a great
deal to be accomplished. The vastness of our
waters and the extent and ruggedness of our
coast make organized protection and administration extremely costly,
But the safeguarding of our fisheries is a
matter which now commands the earnest
attention of our government, who realize the
Importance of conserving this basic industry.
As the oldest industry of our Dominion,
fishing has been one of the largest revenue
producers, and it is significant that Canada's

He looked at them as they stood
there, close, close. His eyelids drooped a moment over his fine, expressive
eyes. Then he was gone, abruptly,
from the room.    Paull sighed.
"Father's a pessimist!   And he says

"Little idiot did you think they sent
an escort or telephone? The call
comes by mail in a long blue envelope."
He sat down, pulled her into his

Carl gazed obediently at the crowded walls.
"What picture?"
"The picture that isn't there. Father
sold it. He's lost his chair at the
University and he thinks that I don't
know. Poor baby! But now they'll
send for him to come back."
"Doubtless," Carl said smiling;
"poor old fellow; how distressed he
must have been."
"They'll produce your play now,"
Paull said, eagerly.
"No," Carl said briefly. "You Bee,
I've been keeping things back too.
Bergman's changed his managerial
mind.   He says it's a had .play."
'Just because it deals with the insanity of war." said Pauli scornfully,
"Carl—don't mind. dear. It will be
a good play again when we are sane
once more:"
He hesitated. Held her cheek to his
Said slowly  releasing her:
"Well—but I've changed my views,
too Paull."
She jumped up and onfronted him.
Her face was blazing with sudden color.   She cried out:
"You—you! Just because a band is
playing! You mustn't Carl. You
mustn't. More than ever now you
must tell the people that the real enemy Is Hate! She smiled realizing
how faithfully she had remembered
how acurately she was quoting his
earlier defiances. "Don't I make that
'Yes—quite clear," answered Carl,
unconvinced, his mind occupied with
the unusual beauty that momentarily
transformed her .
"All this silly fury about nothing.
Do you know that Mltzi was beginning
to hate—Bruce?"
Carl frowned. Now he believed the
war to be over, now that a band was
not playing, so to speak, he began to
be a little ashamed of all his previous
outbursts; and he said very sincerely:
"How idiotic!"
"Well;   I'd  begun   to  hate  Mitzi,"

"And Mltzi," continued Paull, "was

very low.
"Dearest I couldn't tell you when I
thought you were going away, but
soon after we moved Into our new

She rose hurt, bewildered. Carl got
to his feet.
"What Is it?" she asked him. She
followed his glance and started toward
the door. He put out a hand to stop
her. '

Her eyes were fixed staring.    She

"Pauli—It's just a circular "
Hre face was aged by years. She
kept her eyes on the thing in. the wire

She said, spacing her words, and as
if she had seen something horrible,
"There's no stamp!"
"How an you see from here? Many
circulars have no stamp.   We mustn't

Carl whispered,—
"Get It!" she said as sharp as a

"I haven't been home," said Fritz

damply across the top. Carl read: —

still,  listening.
Pauli turned to Fritz.
"1 don't understand.   Carl said there

"It's sudden" he told her, "see

Carl read aloud, slowly, as if the
words were strange to him:—
"British army mobilizing."
Fritz laughed an uply sound.
"To hell with that Bort of talk—they
were ready."
Carl continued still In that childish
, first grade fashion:—
"Sending troops to Belgium"	
"Let 'em." screamed Fritz, "the more
the merrier! We'll hound them into
the sea!"
The paper fell to the floor,
cried out: —
"Yes! By God—yes!"
Baruska,    open-mouthed    at
table broke suddenly Into song,
sang beating time with a knife:
"No nation that opposes us."
Pauli   turned—cried   out   sharply,
But Carl had  lost his  head.    He1

dragging Fritz with him.

Come, we'll slug the chorus with her,

sang Carl, in his clear tenor.
Pauli stood, a little rock of silence,
while the waves of music beat about
her. She said finally, imploringly,
almost pityingly:—"Carl."
"Sing," commanded Carl. He and
Fritz and Baruska stood there. They

"We're at war—with England," her
husband told her, and Carl stooped to
pick up the paper. "Here," said Carl.
"The more the merrier," said Fritz
again. He silenced Baruska's voice,
which had continued, solo, and raised
his own again:—"We're going to rush
the Russians."
Mltzi read aloud:—"Germans assaulted in London."
"We can do that too," Fritz told
She continued holding the paper
tightly:—"Austrian flag dragged in
the mud."
Fritz said rapidly:—"One Englishman has been beaten, in Fraiiz Joseph
Strasse.   There'll be others. The country is full of spies.   We'll clean them
"Every—damned—one!" said Carl.
Pauli paled she said: —
Carl shrugged. His face was lit by
an ugly inner flame. It flickered in
his eyes.   He said roughly; —
"But for Bruce and his countrymen
we shouldn't be—I shouldn't be—going. Come on Paull, sing, sing everybody, sing!
They sang.    All save Pauli.    She
stood quite still, listhenlng, yet not
hearfng.   The chorus rang out:—
"God marches with our eagles,
God victory will bring;
If the King of England fights us—
Pauli looked up.   In the open doorway stood—Bruce Gordon.    He was
white, whiter than she.   He came Into
the room and closed the door behind
him.  The singing stopped.  There was
a dead slelnce, a silence with body to

Bruce asked, quietly:—
"Well, what's happened?"
He looked at Fritz.   Fritz wet his
dry lips, tried to speak, said "You"—
and stopped.   The sound was animal,
not human.   A growl a snarl.
"He's drunk," thought Bruce.
"Carl, what's happened?"
"You know!" said Carl sneering.
"I do not.   I've been Teading in the
University.    Paull—he   took   a  step
nearer her—"Paul! tell me.'
Carl Jumped between them. He said
"Keep away from my wife.
Pauli thrust out her hand imploringly.   The slow tearB gathered in her
eyes.     Bruce frowned.   He said, amazed:—
"I don't understand."
"You do," Fritz denied, coming close
and thrusting his face near Bruce's

"Where asked  Bruce very quietly.
"In London," Fritz snatched the paper from Mitzi and thrust it at him,
"Read that!"
Bruce read. They stood, watching
him. All of them silent. They watched his face. It hardened. Pauli cried
"Oh, let's be fair! Bruce isn't In
London, and he doesn't have to go.
What do you say Bruce?"
He looked at her.   His honest eyes
were  dull  with   astonishment—with
more—things   struggled  to  the surface in them.   He asked dimly:—
"Ray?   What can I say?"
She spoke  sweetly,  urgently,  despite Carl's hurting clutch laid suddenly on her arm.
"We are friendB."
Bruce answered her Bteadily, eor-
rowfully, firmly.
England is my country.
Paull put her hand to her throat.
Bruce! Bruce Their friend. And Carl
had told her once, after their marriage
of what Bruce had said to him the day
of the birthday party. She spok out,

Fritz understanding, broke in.   He
s.itd nastily:—
"Oh.  wouldn't  he?"
"Not Carl—not Carl!" Paull cried.
"Carl or me or anybody," said Fritz
"Friendship!     What's   that   to   this
traitor—from a land of traitors!'
Bruce swung around on him violently, suddenly. Hist eyes were no
longer dull. They shone. He said: —
"A lnnd of—? What's that you say?
England—England asleep while Germany and you plotted world dominion. England trading quietly while
jealous rivals schemed to crush her.

"You  invade   a   peaceful   nation,"
Bruce went on, "at our very doors!"
"So  your  security   was   involved,"
Fritz sneered.
"Security—no, our honor!" the Eng-
glishman told him. "Don't talk of
friendship. You have no friends." He
bailed the newspaper in his long, clever fingers.. Flung it to the floor.
"When you entered Belgium you became the enemy of the world!"
Fritz started forward. His lips were
drawn back from his even teeth. He
said, threatening:—
"You "
"Wait! Walt!" Pauli implored, Don't

same thing we're saying? We're all

She lifted her strained face, her hands
clasped together, and cried out In a
voice ot exceeding despair, "God to
Heaven, what's lt all about?"
Fritz muttered sullenly, "they dragged our flag in the mud!"
.Mitzi pointed: her hand shook. She
said shrilly:—
"Yes!    And we're flying theirs	
his!" .
Their eyes followed her, to Bruce's
picture the little English flag draped
over the frame.   Carl started forward.
He said bitterly:—
"The dirty rag."
"Don't touch that flag!" Bruce ordered sharply.
Carl stood still.   He asked:—
"What'11 you do?"
Pauli   thought    of   her   question.
"What do you say Bruce?"   She looked at Gordon.   Her question was answered.    Bruce said  savagely, stark
murder in his tone:—
"Never mind. Don't touch it, I tell
Fritz  leaped.    He  screamed.    His
voice soared out over the still room:-
"I spit on It!" cried Fritz.
Bruce's  arm   thrashed  out.    Fritz
staggered back against the table. His
hand touched the carving knife that
lay there and closed on it.    He recovered his balance, he made a sweeping rush at Bruce, the knife in his
"Spy. English Spy!"
Bruce   came   to   grips   with   him,

(continued from Page Three)
A receipt from the
Police Onirt Clerk is
not nearly as attractive as one from a
Brake Service Station
who has tested and relined your brakes.
When you pay a fine—
it's a total loss. Paying
for a genuine Ruyhcs-
tos Brake Lining job
saves money, and the
knowledge that you
can stop safely, quickly and surely in any
emergency saves your
peace of mind.

She said:—
"Then go!    Go now, please!"
He turned away it seemed to him
that his heart, that strong heart, that
fragile heart, broke in his body. The

As husband and wife left the room
: the others heard her say, steadily:—
j "We must go to Kurt; you know"—
, Bruce stood where he had stopped
at Jan's entrance. He was a little
dazed. Not from the cut—from life—
that was all. Jan saw htm. spoke
gently, unemotionally:—
"You've hurt your hand. Come let
me fix it—a little cold water."
Bruce went with him. docilely. Baruska had gone,   They followed her.

and the coal shales were. It properly
utilized, of more value than the coal
The results to be obtained from
coal from different mines and even
from different seams differs greatly.
By the Berglus liquifying process It
has been found possible to convert
from 20 to 50 per cent of the weight
of raw coal into oil, refined into gasoline, kerosene, fuels and oils. It has
been found possible from a certain
grade of bituminous coal to manufacture gasoline at 9 cents per gallon.
Much money has been spent. Mr.
Davie says, ln aid of agriculture, fisheries and forestry, but mining had
not received due consideration by the
Provincial authorities. Coal mining
is on the decline owing to the competition of fuel oil, and tbe plan suggested, which Is leading to such wonderful discoveries particularly In
France and Germany is the logical
solution. Bigger profits for the operators would give steady and profitable
employment to tbe miners. This In
turn would benefit the farmers hy
providing a home market. The merchant would find a ready buying public. The lumberman would find a
larger outlet for his produce through
Increased building. Mr. Davie believes this plank to be the most important In the platform he Is presenting to his constituency.

TWELVE years of social reform and continued
advancement under Liberal administration have
brought forward Dr. MacLean as our Man of the Hour.
He has been intimately associated with every measure
of reform during twelve strenuous years of office as Provincial Secretary, Minister of Health, Minister of
Finance, Minister of Education and Premier of British
The Liberal Government has kept faith with the working people who build the prosperity of this country.
The Liberal Government has a record of achievement
with which no other administration has ever come
before the electorate.
Are we going to let Dr. MacLean continue the policy
that is making our Province famous, that is bringing
dollars and cents to every workingman and woman in
British Columbia?
Are we going to accept the record of the Liberal Administration and show them our confidence by again
reposing in them the trust they have so completely
proved themselves worthy of and able to carry on?
Twelve years have given the Government a complete
grasp of the needs of the common people of this Province. Is it likely that this knowledge will benefit these
people if an untried number of men have to start all over
again at Victoria?
Something accomplished, something done, has marked
twelve years of Liberal Administration. As voters,
we know what has been done for us, and appreciate it.
We approve of Dr. MacLean's P. G. E. Policy. . . . we
know that further reductions in taxation will follow....
and that Dr. MacLean has pledged himself and his Government to develop the agricultural area and natural
resources of this Province.
It is a natural and human thing for us to show our appreciation and gratitude for these accomplishments.... to
show our approval of Dr. MacLean's policy of progressive and constructive legislation by returning him
to power on July 18th and electing the Liberal can-
didates to support him.
